                         Jack Knox Training Clinic

                            JULY  11 - 13th

                                   Fairview, IN


The training clinic is open to all levels of dogs and handlers

We will be limiting the number of dogs allowing each handler/dog team to work twice a day.  The sheep are wool sheep for the most part, I may also have some young Kathadins.  There are appropriate sheep for all work.  There is a variety of places to work the dogs in.  There is a round pen, a small pasture, a 3 & 6 acre hay field as well as a 40 acre field.  We also have the ability to set up a couple trial courses.

Saturday and Sunday of the clinic will be held in the usual clinic format.  Moday will be a bit different.  Jack has been wanting to do a trail/judging clinic. Monday -  We will work on individual skills and run a course with Jack giving each of us suggestions for improvement.   We will have an open type course set up as well as a smaller course in a fenced pasture for the younger dogs.  Those dogs entered in the clinic on Monday must be able to run at least a Novice course.   You may enter any or all the days of the clinic and there will be audit spots all three days.  IF you enter the clinic Sat and Sunday and want to audit Monday there will be only a nominal charge for the additional day.

 Cost:  $360.00 for each  3 day working spot  /  working spot for Sat & Sun $260.00   / working Monday only  $160.00 
 Audit:  $70.00 each day  or  $180.00 for 3 days

Lunch and refreshment will be provided both days.   We will adjust the clinic hours depending on the temperatures and do what is best for the dogs and livestock.  We may begin early and finish before 4 or we may  take a longer break  in the late afternoon for lunch and discussion.

 Be sure to bring a chair, notepad and appropriate clothing-we will work rain or shine. 

Limited Camper parking available only if the ground is solid / dry– no hookups

Entry form and check must be received by May 23rd. Checks will be cashed May 25th.  Refunds only available if the clinic is cancelled.  You may find someone to take your spot if you are unable to attend.   Please email me if I will not have your check by this date.  If it is past the entry date please check with me as there may be working spots available.  I will hold your working spot when I recieve a check.  You can send a deposit to hold your spot and send in the balance by May 23rd.
